Of late the fashion industry in Botswana has been front-lining news papers with local and international designers show casting their work. The fashion industry in Botswana is growing and of course people who show and model the designs need recognition, yes I'm referring to the Models. Today i have here a gorgeous young lady who is in the modeling industry, sat with her for a chat and this is how it all went down:

Birth date
April 1988

Location
Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Hometown

I understand you are an aspiring MODEL, tell us how long have u been MODELING?

You might know this duo as Dr Corp aka Kenny and Quency aka T-Mas Strata Boi, they just recently graduated from Bachelors of Arts: Graphic Design majoring in Multimedia from Limkokwing Malaysia Under Curtin University in Australia, and are set to take Botswana by storm.
If you have been following my blog you’d know that they aren’t strangers here, they have been featured quite often.
This time around they come as STUDIO 24 BW Media House Production
I had the privilege to sit and chat with them for the first time as STUDIO 24BW team.
…. And this is how it all went down


Hello my fellow Blog followers, sorry I have been gone for sometime, my schedule has been messy.. Oh well back to the main focus of this post
Fashion Fashion Fashion 'A prevailing style of dress'
It has come to my attention that the fashion industry in Botswana is on the rise. This past weekend I had the privilege to attend BOTSWANA FASHION WEEK Finale (the 2nd Fashion week in the country) boy ooh Boy, designers were good, their designs were Superb, breathtaking indeed..

A lotta people still think GUYS shouldn't be concerned about how they Dress. They call them names and point fingers at if they do..
Gone are the days when fashion was considered to the a "GIRL" thing
Guys nowadays are into fashion too, we also take care of our Hair and Skin
Guys do runways, Model and design.  
Designers also have male collections added to their work
Here is some of the GEAR i came across















A simple Classy Jacket from Zara
I came across an online animated free video-maker so i took "advantage" of it

There You go people, I hope u like it

What makes you think you cannot do it?
Doubts? Maybe!
What are afraid of?
Yourself? Success? or Failure?
why do you have to?
Deep down each one of us there is a LiL warrior to fight our battles
Many of the people that "Failed" turned out to  be one of the most successful people in the world
Take Warner Brothers Co. for examples, it has been rejected 100s of times and now its one of the well know Entertainment Inc

Believe it or not, we all got Dreams, but are we executing them?
Some are, some not...
but are we really putting that much effort into it?
If not, what are u waiting for?
Time ain't waiting for no man...
Do u wanna wake up one day and u are 50years and u don't know what u have done in with life?
I Doubt..

Have you worked on your Dream Plan?
Have you asked yourself how far are you with it?
How many times have you tried and things didn't turn out right?
Did u Give up? Did u Quit? I hope u didn't!!!
Like they always say NEVER GIVE UP
It might sound CLICHE to most but yep, NEVER SAY NEVER
DREAM big and take ur ASS of that sit and do something about your life
We all got Something SpeciaL Something That no other person has
So let it SHiNe it will Be Recognized
Who knows, it might have an Impact on someone out there
DoUBTS Won't take you NOWHERE
You and I shouldn't make excuses and Doubts part of our lives

The 267 crew is back.....
Are they back with a BanG after a very LOOOOONNNG break from FiLminG?
Will they Impress??? We ShaLL See.....
Back with their 3rd episode of the Voom Vuum Car Show

Check it out before I make my comments

I wanna give them a ThumbsUp for being one of the few producers who by far came up with such an idea and still try to maintain the production...!
However, its 2011 I expected a change, something spectacular extraodinary. I would say the episode is not that different from the previous ones, a bit of creativity is needed to keep the Show going.....
Overall its OK!!!! 4me

Yes we made it, over 30 Dedicated students Graced the 2nd Bots Boleh Photography event, these guys managed to take some few hours from their daily schedules to make the event a Success. March 19th 2011 was an exceptional day for the 30something of us, the Event was Fully organized by Batswana Student here in Malaysia
Here is All of us @ Bots BoLeh Photography Session
It was all about the Cameras flashing and the Models & Non-Models Posing and the Directors Screaming, with 17 Photographers and 13 "Models' and 2 directors,me being one of them. It was the battle of the Canon and Nikon, as for me all the cameras looked the same the difference being the lens, however, the guys could tell the difference from each cam....
Thou the event started LateR that the time set (Start 12noon Started 2pm,nigro timing) it still turned out good. This was the second event and my first appearance, i was really impressed by the Turn Up and the dedication of them people who made it there..  
SORRY FOR THOSE WHO GOT LOST 
Better luck next time 
Although it rained the photographers took advantage of the whether and still produced Great Shoots
This are some of the Me featured pics












HOWEVER, u know me, i always have somethings to NOTE, and here I go:
  1. Lets all be on time the next event PLEASE,if you know u are gonna be very Late do us and yourself a favour and don't COME
  2. If we ask for models and u think  and/or know you are not Please don't bother showing up, we wanna show the photographers' potential here
  3. If u just wanna come because u wanna come PLease don't come, If u decide to show up anyways make yourself useful a lot of camera bags, reflectors and Models Bags to carry around, even Water Bottles
  4. ModeLs buy & read magazines and learn some poses there. Also watch Modeling shows, ANTM, Make me a SuperModel, The Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency, Models of the runway even Fashion TV
With me having said that, i would say Photographers did an outstanding JOb so is everyone

EVENT WAS A GREAT SUCCESS, looking forward to the next one in APRIL. 
How are we going to set it different from the others??
APRIL LEGOOOOOOOOO!!
PHOTOS are already going VIRAL on facebook, check out photographers FanPages

Yet another video from Strata Boi and his Team, this guy makes video & musik production look easy, single after single followed by videos,maybe i shud have one as well what do u think??
Anyways, moving on, the reason I'm doing this piece is coz I'm overwhelmed with the latest Boleh video.This is by far according to me The Best Video I've seen here in Boleh..
Just take a Look before i go On and On preaching about it....

Luvlace n' kasiboi - Lace Up (kasiLace)



Again the quality is massive, another HD Blu-ray ish. The main reason why i dig this video is coz of the fashion, damn those shoes the hand bags and the scenery #OnPoint LooooovE it no doubt. Moreover, i think the video wasn't shot in one day (if it was, job well done, a smart move and change of scenery and clothes). The Streets shoots, Mall Shoots and Studio shoots are amazing. This shows that more time was dedicated to this video,oh yah the song its still an OK song for me, however the video makes it worth listening to
EPIC video, an 8/10 will do, so far the highest rating from me
Hope the next Production team will work on beating that, thot Grandfinale had it but kasiLace made them Lace UP, Production Teams LEGOOO
To the other Production Teams where you at, havnt heard from u in Ages

OK I'm done

It looks like most of the Artists have gone silent, its already 1/4 of the year and only a few videos have dropped. so far i know of 3 videos and this post Imaa deal with the 2nd one realised. So if i May ask,is 2011 a slow year for the artists and producers out there?? Whats with the Hold Up?Need some Help?? HoLa a lotta Hidden talent out there waiting to be discovered
The reason why Im doing this post its cause of the Grand finale Video, Damn this Boleh guys are always steeping up the ladder every after each video they realease, i feel bad for the Newbies, they gonna have to work hard..
Check what im talking about...


The Quality of the video is on Point, this is what Im talking about,HD or shud i say BLU-Ray (Maybe). The song its a Great song for me,I wudnt mind to put it on replay, like I always say Videos Always make the song worth Listening to. However i have some criticism with the video.. first of all why is it Short?, 2 and Half Minutes, seriously Dr Corp, is the song that short...? Wasn't it suppose to be atleast 3minutes? Me knowing ur potential i wud say u guys unda performed for an interesting video like this 1, serious, u could have done way better. on another tip my guy chachacha me and ur earphone in almost all ur videos don't do no-more, I feel like they are degrading the videos,u gotta luz them for once maybe. I know u gotta hear the song or something maybe a phone would help or a portable player perhaps. As for Mor G o jele, those rap verses where on point, cant wait for more from yah....
Overall a 7/10 will do on this video by far one of the highly rated videos by me. I would have gone a bit higher if the video was a bit longer and no headphones

Besides Partying, our fellow students from Nottingham took time to came up with an event to Honour our Culture
Yes People BOTSWANA CULTURAL NIGHT hapening tomorw as in 16th February 2011, come on ladies and gents come in ur Khibase and Matalo and rock ur way thru the night, 10bucks for a damage its almost nothing, and please forget BooZe for a while, Thank U...
Ngwao e simolola ka 19.30hrs, u can bring your International friends to come check out wat we do in the JUNGLE.....


And on another Event, we gotta party in style?Its the  Annual Event that takes place both in Botswana and Malaysia, yes u guessed it right we Going BACK2SKOL people are you readdy...!!!??
Yes people we y'all are going Bk2skoL and some already are...
A lotta people have been asking where and when is the event,if u haven't come across this photo on facebook, i hope now u have & know. When i went thru the line up there we only 2 familiar names, Dj Stinky and BigChew no offense to others (by the way is BigChew coming back to boleh?)
On another note, understand DJ ZinhLe all the way from mzansi will be rocking the night, to be honest havent heard of her but i think she might be GreeeeeeeeeeaaaT, i went thru her website and her resume is insane, she will be playing in Miami this year too. She better come rock our classrooms,naught Girls wanna be punished by headmasters
Esih people school start early Jooh- 7pm TiL(.....) and Madi a Dijo ke RM60 yeses according to me, its a bit Pricey
Come in style people, dress to impress, Boleh style i know u guys wont disapoint
By the way, where is Poppy Garden i.e how to  locate the venue

And then Comes this 2 events, HeLd on the same day, im wondering how we gonna allocate our time to honour both the events, with the respect of time and money..


The Back2SkoL FootbaLL tournament on the 26th Feb i.e the following day after Back2 School. Its should have been named After SkuL Futbal Tournamnt #MyOpinion
MMU Grounds, its from morning 9am til late
so far i dont know how many teams have registered but as of today where i saw the picture no updates and it shows that the registration is stil OPEN on their PIK-besides the time and  venue this lacks more details for those who wanna register for the likes of me all the info is provided
Lets go watch in style, i think Jusco got Camp Chairs and CooLers. Dont sit on Bricks please, its so Ghetto, ooh dont forget to bring Umbrella, i think by now y'all know Boleh
An Update on registration info will be CooL for those who wanna register

BigWigs Picture (not mine
Later that night we gotta go CooL down at the Beach PARTY , Melaka Beach is the venue.Y'all can go CooL down on a saturday night, samething, bring ur own camp chair your own CooLers and enough Drinks for you and ur Bud (gare bate mpharanyetsa  foo) nope sorry...

But here is one thing missing, TIME wat does it start Y'aLL
I went to BigWigs' fan page (promoters/organiserz nt sure) to get more details about the event and still i came empty handed
Come on guys dont FaiL on people there is stil time to to update ur event information


Now here is one thing that got me worried.. 2 event on the same day and the other one start from morning TiL late and im sure people all the way from Melaka will attent the first event Coz its football, ding dong, FootbaLL i think they have registerd too. An there is the un-timed Beach Party. My concern is how are we goona juggle ourselves amongst the 2? its either one of it becomes EPIC and the other EPICFAIL 
So now its up to You Promoters out there to work your magic, make us come to your shows, and the main battle is between the Beach Party & The FootbaLL tournament so who got the right skill and whus gonna K.O the other, we shall see, Game On, Legoo

Been away for some time people, life and circumstances forced me to Take a Break, anyhow, whether I’m on break or not people out there are working their butts off to get something done, from gossiping, Cracking jokes, Song Writing, JOLLing, Music eish let me shut imma soon blow ur ears out and get myself into Trouble…
Moving on, Here again it’s a Music Video, yah I know I’ve been going on and on about Musik Videos, come on guys, the way this videos are going viral on FacebooK how can we miss them??
Now I’m here to share yet another video released this past weekend by TALISMAN production alongside MULABISC Production, ok let see what they have in store for us LeGooo

       Street Cred L.J Ramesis & Big Ty


Now let’s get Started, where to start?? Video Girl, Seriously, u came for a shoot wearing that? are u kidding me?? Next time try something better than that, Sorry to  Say, that’s not so happening in a video that I will given the Privilege to direct NOOO Way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And there is something about this song, I’m not sure whether the lines are wrongly matched to the beat or the beat makes u guys fail the song or there is something missing really i don't know...
When I listen to the song the lines are well delivered, the beat is OK,so according to me the song would have been massive hit if matched with the right beat…
Video concept is kinda CooL matches the title....
Seriously in Malaysia we are on Another LeveL
This is not one of my favorite videos but still its not as bad as some videos I’ve seen, back home being the worst
Ratings 5.5/10 come harder next round
Potential is there...

Thoughts Anyone??
